The gimmick for this Fusion poll was the NHML, specifically ten previous NHML winners were up for voting. There were some good options, but it wasn’t super surprising to see Neferpitou and Megumin win. Of course, the end result is a cute catgirl wizard, as seen here! Hope you all like her!
So, I’m always a little wary to do much with these two. I stopped watching Hunter × Hunter right around the time Pitou was introduced, so I didn’t experience her story or arc first-hand. I do know the events that transpire, though, so I just feel like I’m in a weird spot with their relationship. For those who played my game, though, you probably already have a good idea of their relationship in the Studio if you got Gon’s dialogue where he mentions her, but I figured this Ask might still be interesting for some. I put off answering this one for a long time mostly because I think there’s an inherent vagueness to it that makes it difficult to answer. Like, different circumstances can cover a wide, wide range of possibilities, and with infinite potential ways people can meet there’s always gonna be some way where people could get along well. I dunno, it was just kinda open, but I figured having Pitou appreciating Gon’s assets objectively might be a funny/cute way for her to respond.
The Near Hentai Monthly Lady for July is Neferpitou from Hunter × Hunter. I know there’s some debate over this character’s gender in the fandom, but since the design includes noticeable chest bumps and this is the Near Hentai Monthly Lady, I’ll be referring to them as a female (also, as far as I can tell, the debate revolves around physical gender, not gender identity).
She’s the second H×H character to be featured in NHML, and since Killua was paired with Canary for that pic, I decided to pair Pitou with Gon. I don’t know what kind of relationship these two might’ve had in the series. Pitou seems to be a luitenant to the main villain of an arc or two, but then possibly switches sides? I have not done proper research here, but the scenes I saw of her seemed to suggest that.
